Frank Ocean Dropped Another Album
Less than two days after surprising fans with his visual album, Endless, Frank Ocean finally released the long-awaited follow up to his 2012 hit Channel Orange.
Blond–formerly titled Boys Don’t Cry, and strangely missing the “e” from the iTunes title—features a slew of heavy hitters like Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, the Creator, Pharrell, Kanye West, Jazmine Sullivan, and Andre 3000, and is the album Ocean fans have been waiting for.
To kick off the launch, the singer/rapper/writer is launching pop up shops in Los Angles, New York, Chicago, and London to sell copies of Blond inside of a faux magazine titled, Boys Don’t Cry.
After four years without any new music from Ocean, the release of both Endless and Blond are a welcomed surprise for his fans.
This album is exactly what I expected. Raw emotion and storytelling.
Not a lot of people will appreciate that these days.#Blonde
